Private messages part, no curser!
Posted by HooYah Deep Sea on Wednesday, December 1, 2021 1:09 PM

The last several times I've tried to message someone, I could not get a curser to show in the open message box.   What's up???

"Why do I do this? Because the money's good, the scenery changes and they let me use explosives, okay?"

HooYah,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I'll mention it to online and see if they have any suggestions.

Hi, Tim, it also happens sometimes in the text editor when replying to posts.  Click to reply, the editor window opens, and the cursor isn't visible.  It's there, in the first column on the first row, because you can hit any character and it'll show up.  But it makes it look like something is wrong.

It's been that way for a while, but it's such a minor item that I don't think anyone really noticed.

I've seen it in both Chrome and Firefox, running on Win10.

I've suspected that it's something with the way the forum software interacts with the browser.  I seen similar issues at times with our applications (I work in software development, as a QA tester).  A new version of the browser is deployed, and some things in our app no longer work correctly.

Good to know. Earlier this week, I went back through the Reporting Forum and compiled a list of issues you and others have reported going back to the last major update in 2015. I've delivered it to the devs and am hoping to be able to report back some good news in the coming weeks.

My pm feature works only if I’m replying to a previous sent pm but not when trying to contact a different member As a new conversation. I get the white box with the X on the right top corner and nothing else.
